Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Almost as popular as New Year’s Eve parties, are New Year’s resolutions. According to goskills.com’s Brad Zomick, the top 10 most common are:

 Exercise more

  1. Lose weight
  2. Get organized
  3. Learn a new skill or hobby
  4. Live life to the fullest
  5. Save more money/spend less
  6. Quit smoking
  7. Spend more time with family and friends
  8. Travel more
  9. Read more

 He also mentions that over half of the people who make resolutions ultimately fail.  “Now that’s just stinkin’ thinkin’”, says this writer who’s made a resolution of her own - Be more POSITIVE in 2023! According to a study Mr. Zomick introduced from The Journal of Clinical Psychology, 46% of people who made New Year’s resolutions were successful! That’s a really BIG number and a lot more than I would have thought. 

 Here at Island Bum, we asked our staff and their families what their hopes were for the New Year, and they included resolution #’s 1,4,5,8 and 9.  So whether you are exercising more, learning something new in a sunny locale or living life to the fullest, with family and friends, traveling to an exotic destination on the water, we hope you take our Island Bum clothing and accessories with you! Our UPF50 protection will help keep you safe in the sun and ready for another year full of Island Bum Adventures.   Happy New Year!
